In this day and age people may think it strange that a child's first watch was a very big deal. They are now so cheap and almost disposable. When I finished Primary school (in those days it was Grade 8) my parents bought me my first watch. It came from Wallace Bishop's (before it was a franchise) and was dainty and delicate in marcasite.
It disappeared some time in the 70s when I was living in Melbourne and I mourned its loss.
Many years later my daughter gave me this one she found at Cash Converters. It's not exactly the same, but it is dainty and delicate. It doesn't work but I don't care. I treasure it because my daughter took the time to find it and give me a reminder of something special.
